    2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels – Features and Price

    Slick design

    Clean surfaces, tight lines, and contrasting front and back volumes remain the 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels trademarks, but this time they reach new heights of quality and elegance. The latest 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels has new side wings borrowed from the Ducati Multistrada 1260, making the front end sleeker and more streamlined.

    2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels

    The 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels blends Ducati Multistrada Spoked Wheels 1260 and Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro design characteristics to perfection, incorporating the ‘lightest’ aspects from both. The front design – with the unique horizontally expanded headlamp, the ‘beak,’ changeable screen, side ‘wings’ and tank – draws inspiration from the Ducati Multistrada 1260. The rider’s seat, passenger seat, the design of the exhaust and swingarm, rear grab rail, and the wheel sizes are, instead, derived from the Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro. This combination has created a bike with traditional 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels lines that are also small and not just aesthetically.

    Fundamental design changes of the 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels are the new, lighter aluminum alloy wheels and the new lighter spoked wheels available for the S variant.

    Ergonomics

    Built with long-range touring in mind, the 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels has been engineered to guarantee excellent comfort even when fully loaded. It has given rise to an ergonomic “triangle” that ensures, for rider and passenger alike, comfort and control whatever the circumstances. The bike is ‘roomy.’ It can comfortably accommodate two persons, even with top case and side panniers installed. Footpegs have been wrinkled with rubber inserts to reduce vibration.

    The 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels screen enables one-handed vertical adjustment within a range of 60 mm; the accessory line also offers a lower net. There are two 12 V power outlets, one in the zone directly under the passenger seat, the other in the dashboard zone. These may be used to power heated garments, intercoms, or Smartphone chargers. The Garmin sat-nav, available as a Ducati Performance accessory, is powered through a specific connection. There’s also a USB connection beneath the seat, which can be used to charge cellphones.

    Engine

    The 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels is driven by the already famous two cylinders 937 cm3 Testastretta 11° with Desmodromic timing. Euro 4-rated (in places where Euro 4 regulations apply), this liquid-cooled engine has four valves per cylinder with diameter and stroke dimensions of 94 and 67.5 mm, respectively. Engine power equates to a maximum of 113 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and a peak torque of 96 Nm at 7,750 rpm. The overall compression ratio is 12.6:1.

    The 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels gulps in the fuel mix via 53 mm cylindrical-section throttle bodies controlled by a sophisticated Ride-by-Wire technology. The new exhaust system is of the 2-1-2 type with a lateral silencer. The self-servo wet slipper clutch may now be controlled with less on-lever effort due to the improved hydraulic control system. The 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels engine has maintenance intervals of 15,000 km or every 12 months, including a valve clearance check every 30,000 km.

    2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels

    Frame

    The 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels frame includes a solid Trellis section with large-diameter, low-thickness tubing and two lateral sub-frames, capped off by a rear load-bearing techno-polymer fiberglass element to optimize torsional stiffness. The 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels has a minimum ground clearance of 183.5mm only. A 1,594 mm of wheelbase distributes rider and baggage (where appropriate) weight precisely, improving the bike’s dynamic performance. The new lighter, the shell-cast aluminum twin-sided swingarm, is painted black.

    Suspension

    The 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels features a front upside down 48 mm fork with 170 mm of travel, a specialized cast fork leg, fully adjustable spring pre-load and hydraulic compression and rebound damping. At the back, a shock connects the swingarm to the left cast sub-frame: again, spring pre-load is adjustable (through the knob-operated hydraulic press), as is hydraulic compression and rebound damping. The spring is progressive, thus improving riding comfort even with the bike fully laden. Rear-wheel travel is 170 mm.

    The 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels is, instead, fitted with the new Ducati Skyhook Suspension Evo (DSS) system, based on a diameter fork of 48mm and rear shock (both electronic) (both electronic). Rebound and compression damping are changed constantly according to a semi-active method that provides optimum vehicle balance.

    In reality, the technology maintains bike attitude constant whatever the road surface, thereby reducing swaying of vehicle, rider, and passenger and substantially increasing comfort and safety.

    2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels

    The Skyhook name comes from the unusual feeling experienced while riding, as if the bike were hanging from a hook in the sky, keeping it balanced, steady, and highly receptive to any change in attitude. This revolutionary technique surpasses traditional passive suspension systems through continuous management of dynamic wheel behavior. Thanks to the clever DSS Evolution system, virtually all the negative consequences of too soft or harsh a setting are avoided without compromising performance or safety.

    Tires and wheels

    The 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels has new wheels that decrease total weight by 500 g compared to the previous generation. Wheels measure 3.0” x 19’’ (front) and 4.5” x 17’’ (rear) and install Pirelli Scorpio Trail II tires (120/70 ZR19) at the front and (170/60 ZR17) at the back.

    This tire provides an ideal combination of off-road racing capability and excellent road performance. Designed for the most demanding riders, its plus-points include high mileage, constant performance throughout its life-cycle, and first-class implementation in the rain.

    The unique tread design on the SCORPION™ Trail II blends the off-road strategy used throughout the SCORPION™ range with the expertise acquired by Pirelli in creating the ANGEL™ GT Pirelli’s most OK sport touring tire, considered the sector standard. The side grooves of an all-new SCORPION™ Trail II tires are intended to guarantee optimum drainage in the rain, while the pattern and shape of the center grooves not only improve water drainage performance but also offer superior grip more stability and more even wear. The 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels is also available with tubeless tire wheels with aluminum rims that feature 40 cross-mounted spokes and gravity cast hubs; they mount big Pirelli SCORPION™ Rally tires, more suited to off-road riding.

    Bosch Brembo braking system with Cornering ABS

    The whole 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels series includes a Brembo braking system with the ABS 9.1ME Cornering device, an essential component of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP) (DSP). Bosch Cornering ABS makes use of the Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform to optimize front and rear braking power even in critical circumstances and with the bike at significant lean angles. Through interaction with the Riding Modes, the system provides solutions suitable for any situation or riding condition.

    Thanks to an ABS control processor, the 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels uses an Electronic Combined Braking System (which merges front and rear braking) (which incorporates front and rear braking). It is designed for Urban and Touring Riding Modes but has less involvement in Sport mode when completely automated control is less desired. The combined braking system improves stability by utilizing four pressure detectors to distribute brake force efficiently between the front and rear.

    Designed to enhance rear tire management during heavy braking, the ABS wheel lift detection feature is fully activated in Urban and Touring Riding Modes but disabled in Sport and Enduro mode. The ABS function may also be restricted to the front brakes, a feature the 2019 Ducati Multistrada 950S Spoked Wheels employs in Enduro Riding Mode to allow the rear wheel to wander while stopping on uneven terrain. Nevertheless, the ABS may also be deactivated through the instrument panel in Enduro Riding Mode and settings can be saved and retrieved at the next Key-On.

The front wheel measures 3” x 19” and the rear wheel measures 4.5” x 17” and contains Pirelli Scorpio Trail II tires.

    Their tires give a perfect blend of off-road racing capacity and ultimate road performance. They are designed especially for the most demanding motorcyclists. In addition, that offers high mileage, consistent performance throughout its life-cycle and first-class implementation in wet conditions.

    An innovative tread pattern on the new Scorpion Trail II combines the off-road approach applied across the whole Scorpion line with the experience gained by Pirelli in developing the Angel GT. The grooves of the unique Scorpion Trail II tires are designed specially to achieve optimal drainage in the rain. The new Ducati 2019 Multistrada 950 S Adventure Motorcycle is also available in tubeless tires wheels with aluminum rims that contain 40 cross-mounted spokes and gravity cast hubs. They mount chunky Pirelli Scorpion Rally tires better suited to off-road riding.

    Brakes

    The new Ducati 2019 Multistrada 950 S Adventure Motorcycle comes standard with a Brembo braking system and ABS 9.1ME Cornering device. The Bosch Cornering ABS utilizes Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform to optimize front and rear braking power even in the most critical situations and with the motorcycle at numerous lean angles. With the help of riding modes, the system offers a solution suitable for any situation or condition.

    Thanks to an ABS control processor, the new Ducati Multistrada 950 S uses an Electronic Combined Braking System. It is optimized for both touring and urban riding modes but has a lower degree of interference in Sport mode, where completely automated control is less desirable. The combined braking system improves stability by using four pressure detectors to allocate braking power optimally between the rear and front.

    The ABS wheel lift detection function is designed to improve rear tire control during hard braking, and it is fully enabled in touring and urban riding modes. The ABS function can also be restricted to the front brakes as well.

    The motorcycle contains Brembo M4-32 monobloc radial calipers with four 32 mm diameter pistons and two pads, a radial pump having adjustable levers, and dual 320mm front discs. The rear section features a 265mm disc, which is gripped by a floating caliper by Brembo.

    Headlight, taillight, and Indicators

    Like many other Multistrada families, the new Ducati 2019 Multistrada 950 S Adventure Motorcycle features an assertive-looking, high-tech headlight. The rear section also features LED tail light. In addition, the headlight assembly is a full-LED model containing Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL) that optimizes lighting on bends according to the lean motorcycle angle.

    Kodiak 700 2021 Yamaha Utility ATV – Features and Price

    Kodiak 700 2021 Yamaha Utility ATV

    Top Features

    The Kodiak® 700 emphasizes middle power with gearing optimized for low rpm cruising and smooth-running motor mounts, all due to its 700-class engine, which delivers considerable bore power without sacrificing comfort. For control and confidence, Yamaha’s class-leading gearbox blends quick reaction with sophisticated features like natural, all-wheel engine braking. The Ultramatic®, of course, has proved to be the most robust ATV transmission on the market.

    The Kodiak 700 can easily handle rugged terrain because of its high ground clearance. The Kodiak 700’s wide-arc A-arms and full-body skid plates guarantee it can take whatever the farm or trail may throw at it. The Kodiak 700 blends large-bore performance with a more compact body design typically seen in mid-sized ATVs to improve overall feel and handling while boosting rider confidence. The combined weight capacity of heavy-duty steel cargo racks is 308 pounds.

    Capability

    The Ultramatic® gearbox on the Kodiak 700 2021 Yamaha Utility ATV has a gated shifter, dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive with reverse gear, and the most advanced—and durable—CVT drive system on the market. A sprag clutch offers natural all-wheel engine braking, while an automated centrifugal clutch maintains consistent belt tension for decreased belt wear.

    Kodiak 700 2021 Yamaha Utility ATV

    The Kodiak 700 2021 Yamaha Utility ATV’s engine combines considerable barrel power with a powerful midrange, providing practical, enjoyable, and helpful management. The Kodiak 700 is powered by a 686cc engine that delivers optimum torque, power distribution, and character on trails while remaining smooth and quiet while exploring or working on the job site.

    For positive and accurate transmission operation, Yamaha’s Ultramatic® gearbox uses a five-position shift lever with High, Low, Neutral, Reverse, and Park gates. A handlebar-mounted lever is used to choose a reliable mechanical 4WD system. With the Kodiak 700’s high-mounted air intake configuration, you can take on dirt and water. The design improves power and torque while allowing for more onboard storage and tool-free foam air filter maintenance.

For good mass centralization and handling, a 4.76-gallon fuel tank is placed beneath the seat. The low seat enhances rider comfort and facilitates mounting and dismounting by providing plenty of space to move about while riding. Despite its full-size capability, the Kodiak 700 has a more compact body design that feels and handles like a mid-sized ATV.

    Confidence

    The front bumper is made of a rigid composite material that won’t scrape and won’t corrode. The Kodiak 700 was designed to work in tandem with various attachments for a great fit and function on almost every ride. You may also keep gadgets charged using a standard 12V power outlet.

    Yamaha 2021 Kodiak 450 EPS SE Utility Quad Bike Review

    0

    The new Yamaha 2021 Kodiak 450 EPS SE Utility Quad Bike model blends unrivaled design and amenities with the value, dependability, and durability that Kodiak® is known for. Its review along with price and specification, is written below.

    Yamaha 2021 Kodiak 450 EPS SE Utility Quad Bike – Features and Price

    Features to Look For

    The Yamaha 2021 Kodiak 450 EPS SE Utility Quad Bike combines Yamaha’s acclaimed mix of Ultramatic®, the industry’s most durable automatic gearbox, with On-Command® selectable 4WD for rider-centric control and traction. When you add aluminum wheels and a factory-installed winch, you have exceptional capabilities and the confidence to get you over the most exciting terrain.

    Yamaha 2021 Kodiak 450 EPS SE Utility Quad Bike

    With full-length skidplates as standard, almost 10-inches of ground clearance, and independent double wishbone suspension including adjustable shocks, the Yamaha Kodiak 450 EPS SE is ready to take on rugged terrain without breaking a sweat—and with rider comfort that makes long rides a joy, too.

    The Kodiak 450 EPS SE, unlike many other middleweight utility ATVs, isn’t simply a smaller engine hidden under a full-size body. The Kodiak 450 EPS SE was designed from the ground up to provide riders with a small chassis for excellent trail handling and agility like in 2020 Yamaha Kodiak 450 EPS SE.

    The ergonomics of the Kodiak 450 EPS SE have been intended to let riders of all sizes get the most out of it. Thanks to a long, comfy seat and broad floorboards, riders of all sizes have plenty of space to move about. The handlebar bend of the Kodiak 450 EPS SE is designed for riders of different heights to enhance comfort.

    From the new tool-less air filter design and oil drain ports to the high-attached air intakes and marine-grade electrical connections, the Kodiak 450 EPS SE utilizes various features to enhance longevity and serviceability, much like other Yamaha ATVs and side-by-sides.

    Capability

    The Kodiak 450 EPS SE has 9.6 inches of ground clearance and full-length composite skid plates for optimum underbelly protection in a range of conditions.

    Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering offers the most acceptable combination of steering help and positive feedback in the industry by monitoring gear position, 4WD mode, and speed in real-time to adapt to terrain conditions.

    Yamaha designed the Kodiak 450 EPS SE with a compact body design that is considerably less bulky than competing models for accurate handling and confidence-inspiring riding in various terrain situations.

    Yamaha 2021 Kodiak 450 EPS SE Utility Quad Bike

    The torquey 421cc SOHC engine on the Kodiak 450 EPS SE is intended to offer a mix of immediate power and smooth character for extended rides with minimum strain. Easy cold starts and faultless fuel delivery in almost any circumstance are made possible with Mikuni® fuel injection. At the same time, liquid cooling and a high-volume fan system guarantee dependable, consistent performance for years to come.

    The Ultramatic® gearbox has a gated shifter, park, dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive, and reverse gear and is designed to offer lower cruising rpm for smooth and quiet operation. The location of the gated shifter was also carefully studied, and it was relocated forward to give more space for the rider.

    The On-Command® 4WD technology on the Kodiak 450 EPS SE enables you to choose between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD, and completely locked differential 4WD with the press of a button. An override button allows the engine to attain maximum rpm in full diff lock mode. This driver-controlled technology avoids the stuttering or sliding that may occur while waiting for computer-controlled systems to activate, as seen in specific rival models.

    The sealed rear brake is shielded from dirt, pebbles, and mud, while the hydraulic front disc brakes provide a reliable and robust feel and braking performance. The Kodiak 450 EPS SE adds style and trail-proven toughness to the rolling stock. Rugged 25-inch tires with an aggressive tread pattern provide a mix of accurate steering and optimum comfort to maximize available traction, while robust but light aluminum wheels will last for years.

    Steel cargo racks with wide diameters and a durable wrinkle paint finish can carry a total of 264 pounds. The Kodiak 450 EPS SE comes equipped with a heavy-duty ball mount, allowing it to pull up to 1,322 pounds.

    Comfort

    The Kodiak 450 EPS SE has the same spacious riding posture as the bigger Kodiak 700. Every element of the Kodiak 450 EPS SE was intended to offer class-leading levels of refinement to the middleweight 4×4 ATV category, including tall handlebars, a long and plush seat for enhanced rider comfort for extended work days, big textured floorboards, and a more oversized thumb throttle.

    The Kodiak 450 EPS SE has specially designed rubber engine mounts that isolate engine bay vibrations and provide one of the smoothest rides ever offered in a utility ATV.

    The independent double-wishbone suspension on the Kodiak 450 EPS SE provides an optimized vehicle stance, light steering, and better shock feel throughout the full range of travel. Even in the most challenging terrain, the Kodiak 450 EPS SE offers excellent rider comfort with 6.7-inches of front wheel travel and 7.4-inches at the rear.

    With predictable steering assistance that adjusts to changing riding circumstances for an incredible sense of control, Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering substantially decreases fatigue.

    The additional halogen work light placed on the handlebar beneath a body-color-matched cowl provides increased visibility and lighting to Kodiak 450 EPS SE users. In a contemporary and small design, a tiny all-LCD instrument cluster provides the rider a clear view of speed, gearbox condition, fuel level, and more.

    Over a long riding day, a conventional 12V power connection makes it simple to keep electronics charged. During your trip, you may store different things in the undersea storage compartment.

    Confidence

    Yamaha’s Ultramatic® gearbox earned its reputation as the most dependable on the market. A sprag clutch delivers Yamaha’s famous all-wheel engine braking, while an automated centrifugal clutch maintains consistent belt tension for decreased belt wear.

    The Kodiak 450 EPS SE includes high-mounted air intakes to prevent water and debris from entering the drive system or engine air cleaner, as well as a reusable foam air filter for the engine side that is reachable without tools. These air passages provide lots of fresh, clean air to the engine and keep the V-belt cool even under the most extreme circumstances. Yamaha ATVs include marine-grade waterproof connections for optimum weather protection, as well as increased durability and serviceability.

    The powertrain of the Kodiak 450 EPS SE is intended to make servicing and maintenance as straightforward as possible. The airbox provides tool-less access to the air filter element, and the engine and differential provide handy oil drain holes. Vehicle electronics are placed high on the chassis beneath the front center panel for easy access.

    2020 Suzuki Hayabusa Sports Bike Review Specs Price

    0

    Simply said, the Suzuki Hayabusa is the Ultimate Sportbike. The Hayabusa is not merely a motorcycle; it is full of fun and facts that our readers may not know. When you twist the throttle on this legendary motorbike, it responds with incredible acceleration and precise throttle response in all gears, as well as an unexpected top-end charge. Its acceleration is complemented by equally remarkable handling, offering exceptional control in tight corners, comforting stability in sweeping bends, and a smooth ride on the highway, thanks to a lightweight and twin-spar solid aluminum frame and state-of-the-art suspension. The Hayabusa glides through the wind like a peregrine falcon thanks to its sleek, aerodynamic bodywork.

    2020 Suzuki Hayabusa Sports Bike – Features and Price

    2020 Suzuki Hayabusa Sports Bike

    Key Features

    Riders may choose between Candy Daring Red and Metallic Thunder Gray paint schemes for 2020. A distinctive Hayabusa Kanji sign, as well as color-matched wheels and model name stickers, are featured on both systems. Suzuki’s sophisticated EFI is used in the 1340cc four-cylinder DOHC engine, with two 10-hole fuel injectors feeding each cylinder and twin ram-air intakes in the nose of the aerodynamic fairing.

    The Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) lets the rider adjust the power delivery of the Hayabusa to the riding circumstances. Superb handling is provided by a superbike-caliber, twin-spar aluminum frame and fully adjustable KYB-supplied suspension. Brembo Monobloc brake calipers with anti-lock brakes (ABS) grip fully floating 310mm twin front brake rotors, providing dependable stopping force much better than the 2019 Suzuki Hayabusa. The wind-cheating body, instantly identifiable as a Hayabusa, was genuinely inspired by a peregrine falcon — the world’s fastest animal.

    2020 Suzuki Hayabusa Sports Bike

    Engine Features

    The 1340cc, fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine provides a broad wave of torque for effortless acceleration. Slipper pistons made of three rings of forged aluminum alloy offer greater strength, while PVD-coated calls decrease friction and enhance cylinder sealing. The piston ring coating of chrome-nitride Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) is more challenging and smoother than traditional chrome plating, reducing friction and increasing cylinder sealing. Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) increases heat dissipation, durability, and ring seal.

    To minimize internal pumping pressure and mechanical power losses, U-shaped perforations in the cylinder-bore sidewalls enable air pressure generated by falling pistons to escape to neighboring cylinders. Lightweight titanium valves allow low-lift camshafts and light valve springs while retaining precise valve control. Iridium spark plugs burn more entirely and last longer than ordinary plugs.

    The engine temperature is maintained via a curved radiator with a compact, dense-core design and two ECM-controlled electric fans. Suzuki Clutch Assist Device (SCAS) is a back-torque-limiting system that contributes to a low clutch pull and smooth downshifts. Devoted oil spray to the 4th, 5th, and 6th gears of a close-ratio, constant-mesh six-speed gearbox reduces friction, wear, and mechanical noise during speedy operation.

    Suzuki’s innovative fuel-injection system increases combustion efficiency and smooth throttle response with tapered, 44mm double-barrel Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) induction. Each throttle body has two 12-hole fine-spray injectors that enhance fuel atomization for improved combustion efficiency while lowering fuel consumption. The Idle Speed Control (ISC) technology helps maintain a steady engine idle under various circumstances and enhances cold starting.

    2020 Suzuki Hayabusa Sports Bike

    The Suzuki Pulsed Secondary Air Injection (PAIR) technology burns unburned hydrocarbons (HC) and lowers CO emissions. The twin-silencer exhaust’s large-volume catalyzer allows high flow while minimizing HC, CO, and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions. The Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) will enable motorcyclists to tailor engine power output to their tastes or riding circumstances.

    Chassis Features

    To achieve a combination of low weight and strength, the twin-spar aluminum alloy frame is made up of castings and extrusions. Rectangular steel tubing makes up the rear sub-frame, which can bear a lot of weight. The 43mm stanchion tubes on KYB inverted cartridge forks include a Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating to decrease friction and enhance response to minor road surface imperfections.

    Both the front forks and the single rear shock absorber feature spring preload adjustment and compression and rebound damping. The standard steering damper reduces unwanted vibration and steering forces. Three-spoke cast aluminum alloy wheels with front and rear radial tires measuring 120/70ZR17M/C (58-watt) and 190/50ZR17M/C (73-watt). Brembo Monobloc radial-mount front brake calipers are paired with dual 310mm (12.2-inch) floating brake rotors. The calipers are lighter and more robust than traditional bolt-together calipers, providing superior feedback, and have bigger pistons for increased initial bite and controllability. The hollow-type mounting bolts decrease weight even further. A single-piston brake caliper grabs the single rear 260mm (10.2 inches) brake rotor.

    The Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) unit that comes standard is lightweight and compact. The ABS improves brake effectiveness by adjusting stopping force to available traction, which helps to avoid wheel locking due to variations in road conditions or excessive braking. The Hayabusa’s unique appearance comes from radical aerodynamic styling and sleek bodywork that shields the rider from the wind and increases fuel economy. Advanced aerodynamics provide excellent wind protection in both standard and fully tucked-in sitting positions. Integrated front turn signals form the outside corners of the functional ram air intake scoop.

    2020 Suzuki Hayabusa Sports Bike

    A high projector beam and a halogen-bulb multi-reflector low beam are included in this vertically stacked headlamp. The streamlined bulges in the tail portion merge with the rear turn lights. With a transparent inner lens and a red outer lens, this LED taillight is bright and long-lasting.

    A step-motor-driven tachometer and speedometer are among the four analog instruments. Clock, gear position indication, S-DMS map indicator, odometer, and dual trip meters are all shown on the round LCD screen. Between 4,000 and 11,500 rpm, the engine rpm indicator may be set to flash or remain. The analog gauges and LCD screen include silver metallic trim to match the appearance of race-specification meters.

    Additional Features

    Suzuki’s craftsmanship, difficulty, and performance heritage are indicated by stylized Suzuki “S” 3-D logos on the fuel tank and fork upper bracket. Passenger footpeg brackets, muffler hangers, rider footpeg, and control brackets are all high-quality features that recall the exquisite art of feudal Japanese armor, Yoroi-Kabuto. Genuine Suzuki Accessories, including an extensive range of Suzuki trademark clothing, are available for Hayabusa owners. Limited warranty of 12 months having unlimited mileage and Suzuki Extended Protection that deals with longer coverage durations and additional advantages (SEP).

    The Kodiak 450 EPS has specially designed rubber engine mounts that isolate engine bay vibrations and provide one of the smoothest rides ever offered in a utility ATV.

    The independent double-wishbone suspension on the Kodiak 450 EPS provides an optimized vehicle stance, light steering, and better shock feel throughout the full range of travel. Even in the most challenging terrain, the Kodiak 450 EPS offers excellent rider comfort with 6.7-inches of front wheel travel and 7.4-inch at the rear.

    With predictable steering assistance that adjusts to changing riding circumstances for an incredible sense of control, Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering substantially decreases fatigue. The additional halogen work light placed on the handlebar beneath a body-color-matched cowl provides increased visibility and lighting for Kodiak 450 EPS users.

    Engine: Exciting In-Line Four

    It’s the fun element of the Kawasaki 2019 Versys 1000 ABS LT Sports Tourer dynamic engine that makes it so much fun. Every twist of the throttle delivers a physically and aurally thrilling feeling because of the 1,043 cm3 In-line Four’s flexible tuning, which provides excellent throttle response, high torque throughout the rpm range (but particularly in the low-mid field), and an intoxicating intake scream. The inclusion of Electronic Cruise Control and improved power delivery are both made possible by 2019’s switch to Electronic Throttle Valves.

    Electronic Throttle Valves

    The engine fuel and air delivery may be controlled by the ECU using electronic throttle valves, which connect to the fuel injectors. It’s essential to have the proper fuel injection and throttle valve position for a smooth, natural engine response and optimal power.

    Fun Sport Riding

    To allow riders to carve curves with confidence, Kawasaki engineers designed the GSX-R1000 with the long-travel suspension to compensate for real-world riding taking place on roads that are less than ideal (bumps, potholes, etc.). With its long-travel rest, the Kawasaki 2019 Versys 1000 ABS LT Sports Tourer can deal with less-than-ideal road conditions while remaining composed, while other motorcycles with sportier, stiffer setups would have to ease off the throttle. Front and rear 17-inch lightweight wheels add to dynamic handling.
